The 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup promises to be the biggest event of its kind yet.
Taking place in France across nine venues, the action gets underway on Friday, June 7 when the host nation, and one of the favorites, tackle South Korea at Paris Saint-Germain’s Parc des Princes in the capital, a match that was rapidly sold out.
The U.S. women’s national team travel across the Atlantic as the defending champions, having lifted their third crown by defeating Japan 5-2 in Vancouver, Canada in 2015. They make the journey as one of the hottest tickets in the tournament, which begins for them on June 11 against Thailand in a match that begins at 15:00 ET in Reims.
From the home of Champagne, they will then travel to Paris five days later to face Chile at Parc des Princes, the home of Paris Saint-Germain, at 12:00 ET.
Rounding out their group stage campaign, they will head north to Normandy, where they will face Sweden in another 15:00 ET kick-off from Le Havre.
From there, they hope, it will be into the knockout rounds, where they could begin at Valenciennes, Reims, Montpellier or Paris.
It is not just the USWNT that has captured the imagination, though. FIFA reported in May that 720,000 tickets for the competition had been sold, putting it on track to be better attended than the competition in Canada four years ago.
As such, the World Cup is likely to be a big draw and here’s how you can follow the action from France.
